Regardless of what side of the Michigan-Ohio border one resides, this years version of the annual gridiron battle was exciting, though for Wolverine fans it was yet another loss after hold a late-game lead. The weekend was also the biggest recruiting event of the year for Michigan, as dozens of players made the trek to Michigan Stadium to catch the game.
One of those, Orlando, Fla., wide receiver Greg Mathews, is still in Michigan on the the first of his five official visits, but GoBlueWolverine.com caught up with his father, who said he had spoken with Greg Sunday morning. "He's still up there with his mom and he told me he is really enjoying the visit," Greg's father said. "He said he hadn't committed, we'd like him to take all of his visits before he does commit, but you know he may still do it while he's up there."
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Mathews arrived early Saturday morning, and will return home late this evening, his father said. GBW will catch up with Greg during the week to get the latest, stay tuned.
